Zaful Suede & Grey


Hi Guys,

 This post is in collaboration with Zaful as they gifted me with some clothing items; if you haven't seen my Zaful Autumn Wish List, definitely go and check that out. The jacket that I am wearing is the Lapel Zipper Pockets Suede Jacket which is on trend right now as so many high street stores are stocking this style of jacket. I love the colour, material and the zipper metal detailing. The style of the jacket is cropped and casual and has that biker/leather jacket element to it. I paired this with the Brief Faux Suede Baseball Hat to give it a casual look. I love grey so I styled the rest of my outfit with a grey knit jumper and high waisted skinny jeans and a grey scarf from H&M to match the hat, and to contrast with the jacket so it stands out. The weather in the England has been so windy and cold that layering is so key for this time of year. Accessories like scarfs and hats can keep you warm and comfortable, as well as really make an outfit stylish too!

Zaful Autumn Wishlist


As we transition into Autumn/Winter, our wardrobes change and start to incorporate jumpers, jackets, and coats. As much as I love Summer, I do also love how I can layer my clothes in the colder months and create a variety of looks. I've created this Autumn wishlist featuring items from Zaful. They are an online clothing company that have a range of clothing to suit your individual style; I couldn't help but scroll through sections of their website as they had so many nice stylish items. These items that I have selected were the ones that instantly caught my attention; being on trend and suitable for the season. This is also a great time to shop with them as they have a mega Novemeber sale!

I love trench coats and this one in particular had a nice waterfall style and sleeves that can be buttoned to create a ruched effect. The nude colour is subtle and a nice addition of a coloured jacket to ones wardrobe.

I love the way this jacket has the same style as a leather biker jacket but in a sort of suede material. The colour again is something that stood out to me and it had nice silver zip detailing.

If you know me you will know that I love accessories and jewellery, so I had to add some in this wishlist! These retro rings are just the cutest thing, I just love the amount of detailing put into each one.

As you may have seen on social media recently these baseball caps are on trend right now. They are so simple but can definitely pull an outfit together in an effortless way.

These little bracelets are a cute, each one is simple, but when worn all together or selected ones, they create some gorgeous arm candy.

This is the season for oversized cosy jumpers! This fits perfectly, stylish with the zipper detailing on the sleeve and the chocker neck cut out with an oversized fit.

What caught my eye about this faux leather jacket was the ribbing on the shoulder leading onto the sleeve, it gives it that extra edge! Leather jackets are perfect for Autumn weather.

Be sure to check out www.zaful.com and be Autumn wardrobe ready.

Monsoon Rose Gold Fragrance Review


The Monsoon Rose Gold Eau De Parfum* is a perfume that many woman will love as an everyday scent. It is very elegant, sophisticated and feminine in both the look and the rich floral aroma. I absolutely love the colour rose gold, so everything about this is just perfect. The packaging is simple but yet classy with a rose gold band wrapped around the box and the bottle. The typography and the actual perfume being in the signature colour 'rose gold' shows that it fits with the concept and is coherent; this keeps it minimal but glamorous at the same time. It has a lovely sensual scent with top notes of velvety rose, citrus and soft fruits, combined with a base of Eastern woods, vanilla, mosses, musk and balsamic amber. I feel that the scent lasts whole day, but as the day goes on it settles down to a subtle but sweet smell. If you are looking for a feminine every day scent, this is honestly such a great choice! This is the 30ml bottle at the price of £24 and goes up to 50ml and 100ml; available to purchase at Monsoon, Boots and the Fragrance shop

I hope you enjoyed this post!

WoWigs Virgin Malaysian Curly Hair Initial Review & Unboxing | Aliexpress [Video]

Hey Dolls,

This post is going to be about some curly hair that I have recently purchased and I am currently loving. This is my first time wearing curly hair so it is a new experience for me. This is why I wanted to do an initial review and unboxing to share with you all, and then later on down the line I will do a full review. This is hair is the Malaysian Curly from WoWigs Virgin Hair Boutique on Aliexpress. It came in a cute pink box with purple bows on the bundles.

Hair: 7A WoWigs Virgin Malaysian Curly Hair

I am wearing the hair in a sewin and have done the flip over method so there is no closure or leave out, just my edges. I haven't experienced much tangling or shedding unless I co-wash, and even then it is not a lot. For a more in depth explanation and to see how it moves e.t.c. please watch my review on my YouTube Channel: IamGenie

This video is of me co-washing some curly hair extensions before I installed them. Any hair that you buy online I would advise for you to wash, as you never know what type of conditions they were in before you got your hands on them. A lot of hair that claims to be virgin still might have some chemical processing done to them, like dyes for example. Some hair also have a smell, so it's just best if you wash any hair, to get rid of anything that may be on it as well as to keep it soft and moisturised.

This hair didn't have a smell and when washing no colour or dirt ran out of it. I didn't use any shampoo, just conditioner. The hair is already soft but it's good to use a moisturising conditioner to penetrate the hair. For the sake of this video I only showed me washing two bundles instead of the three as you just repeat the same process. After washing you can apply some leave in conditioner whilst it's damp, which will help it not to dry out. You can use the Herbal Essence as one, I have also started to use 'Cantu Leave In Conditioner' which is really good. Then I seal it with some 'Argon Oil of Morocco Serum' mentioned in my initial review, which I love as it makes it look sleek and shiny. Keep a look out for the tips I mention throughout the video.

Fashion Lookbook Favourites

Hey Dolls,

I am doing a collaboration with Social Print Studio where I showcase and share my favourite outfits and fashion pieces. This is a great way to see all the looks I have put together in one place and you are able to see whether my style has changed or if certain pieces stand out more than others, or if something gives an outfit that wow factor.




A staple piece to have is definitely a white pair of jeans. Well mine are slightly cream but nevertheless it's a must have, whether they are skinny jeans, ripped or distressed they will stand out regardless. I love how these jeans are so fitted and have the high waisted element.





As well as having the essential 'little black dress' in ones wardrobe, a nice addition to that is the little white dress, whether it is loose or fitted body-con I think it's a clean, sleek piece that really brightens a look. It's very elegant and this particular flowy piece is great for the summer time.




Playsuits are such a lovely piece. Is it a top and shorts? A dress? A jumpsuit? Its everything combined and they are a great to wear as they can be styled in various ways. They can also have nice little details, like this particular one has a draped look and some lace on the back panels which is a bit more revealing but classy at the same time. These circular glasses give the outfit that extra edgy feel to it.




Everyone knows how to rock an all blacked out outfit. Why not choose an item that has some detailing to it. Lace is always a nice feature and together with this sheer material makes it great for layering. 





Basics are definitely a staple. They are great for layering but also just as great on their own too as a simple outfit. They can be accessorized like how I done here with this flower crown and some jewellery.




Jumpsuits a are a tricky one, as it is an outfit that will definitely make you stand out, especially if it's an all lace one like the one here, not to mention the colour. Have something in your wardrobe that is out of your comfort zone and just have fun with it.




This dress is one that has the lace, the frills, the nude colour and that feminine look. I like having pieces that you can dress up and down. Add some high top trainers and rock it casually or slip on a blazer and some heals and look fashionably sophisticated.





Bralets and high waisted shorts, giving that festival look. It's okay sometimes to show off some body, be comfortable in your skin and enjoy the sun. High waisted shorts are a really nice look and go great with crop tops too.




I love shirt dresses. You can easily just throw on a pair of tights or leggings and your good to go. It's an easy casual look, but you can also wear some heals and put a belt around your waist and you have a different look. It's such a simple outfit that it's nice when it comes in different prints like this camouflage print so it's more eye catching.






A playsuit that can be worn on a night out or just casually out to eat, it's nice having outfits that are versatile. I love the draped elegant feel to it. Outfits with a drawstring or some cinching at the waist are great for showing some subtle shape.

I hope you enjoyed this post as I had fun writing it and looking back at some of the outfits I styled. Each outfit has a direct link to the blog post I had created for that look, so if you want a more in depth description of where I got each item from e.t.c. then take a look. Capturing your outfits through imagery are a great way to keep track of your style and fashion sense. Photographs can last a lifetime and they are memories and inspiration for yourself and others. Social Print Studio have a great selection of different ways of developing your images especially your Instagram ones. From the simplified square image, to photo books and panoramic prints.

Feminine Chiffon

Hey Dolls,

I know it has been a long time since I have last posted but I have been so caught up in my fashion design degree, it's so hectic! Nevertheless I have come back with an outfit post featuring this lovely playsuit in collaboration with Luxemme. This specific playsuit is called the 'Celine Long Sleeve Playsuit', in the limited edition collection and I was so excited to style it as you can definitely dress it up or down. Instantaneously you would think that this is not something you would wear this type of year because of the weather haha but throw on a coat and you’re good to go lol. The navy blue playsuit looks great with gold jewellery. There are so many things I love about it, one of them being the drawstring detailing as it gives you some shape in the the outfit. I think it is very delicate and feminine, with the chiffon material making it look very floaty and light. I love the way the back drapes and the long sleeves are split, also adding to the feel. I paired this with some strappy heals and a black long jacket from H&M. Again the jacket is quite long and trench coat looking giving it that same light effect. I feel you can wear this playsuit on a night out or to dinner or even for more of a casual look worn with some trainers or flats. 

Luxemme are a fashion brand that combines Parisian fashion with Manchester street style, combining definitive looks with a modern twist. They also launched a celebrity collection with Anita Kaushik.
